About The Teacher:

CLASS: (5)...6,7,8 Dance! :)

SCHOOL PHONE: (818) 528-1600

Hello and welcome to Dance! I have been dancing for approximately 25 years, including training in Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop and basic Tap. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Houston in Health and Dance education and earned my teaching credentials for both subject areas soon after. This is my 12th year of teaching dance, 10 of which have been with LAUSD. This is my 5th year at Millikan and it continues to be a challenging, yet exciting position. In addition to teaching dance, I have also taught Health and Life Skills as well as coached award-winning cheerleading and dance teams.
